Subjects: Mathematics, Graphics, Primary School Subjects, Information Technology and Multimedia
My name is Mark and I am currently studying Secondary Education at Griffith University majoring in Mathematics and Graphics. I have previously earned Bachelors of Information Technology (IT) and Multimedia from Griffith.
My biggest passion in life is chess, which I have not just been playing, but studying, for the last five years. Through having chess as a somewhat full time, extracurricular activity, I have learned the importance of balancing a study load. I believe my best characteristic is my ability to make learning relevant. I have constantly identified how life is like chess and I believe this ability to transform otherwise mundane concepts into relevant stimulus is a very important one.
I have previously worked with children teaching them, yes you guessed it, chess! It is a very difficult job, and one I do not take lightly. I will transfer as much knowledge I have as possible to your child, and not just subject matter. As a tutor I believe it is fundamentally imperative that good study habits, methods and routines be taught to children, rather than just being a secondary teacher and overloading them with content.
Hi, my name is Jess and I am a second year architecture student at Griffith University. I graduated Year 12 in 2014, with an OP 5. I love English, History and Art, and graduated at the top of my class in these subjects! That being said, I have had tutoring in the past – Year 12 Maths wasn’t really my thing! I’ve also participated as a guest lecturer for Year 11 and 12 History students, and helped out some primary kids with their maths, reading and science! I am excited to use these experiences to help others learn and overcome their own learning difficulties. Furthermore, I pride myself on my research, academic writing, referencing and exam skills, which I’d love to share with other students. Living in Australia, we are privileged to have access to an established education system, and it is very important to me that we make the most of the opportunities it provides! Knowledge is power!
Subjects: K-12 English/Advanced English, Math A & B, Ancient and Modern History.
Hi my name is Sage Cullen, I graduated from Hillcrest Christian College in 2015 with an OP 4. In secondary school, I was House Captain and received awards for academic excellence in English, History, Math and Film and TV.
I am currently in my second year of studying a Bachelor of Psychological Science at the University of Queensland. I have always had a desire for helping others which led me to my chosen field.
I understand what it takes to work hard to achieve academic success. I feel confident that I can teach students strategies for studying and organisation and am able to provide helpful advice in all aspects of student education.
I am reliable, organised and supportive and will be very happy to help fellow students to achieve their goals.
Subjects: Year 8 to 10 Technology, Year 7 to 10 Maths, Year 11 to 12 Maths B and Maths A, Design and Technology/Technology Studies and Graphics
I am 18 years old and I have just successfully finished the first year at Griffith University studying for a Bachelor Degree in Industrial Design. I graduated from Townville Grammar School in 2016 with high achievements in Maths B and Chemistry and very high achievements in Graphics and Technology Studies.
As a university/high school student I have been extensively involved in sport (swimming) at state and national levels, which has allowed me to develop strong self-motivational skills with determination to succeed. At High School I was able to maintain a healthy balance between my academic and high-performance sporting activities. Performing well academically and in sport develops exceptional time management and planning skills. Whilst at High School I was annually acknowledged with the Pro Diligentia Award for ‘displaying commitment to achieving my personal best’. I won subject awards also for Graphics and Technology Studies.
Tutoring is a great responsibility and I look forward to taking an active role in working with students in one-on-one settings, with
my aim being for students to reach their full potential.
Hello, my name is Tiffany, and I’m currently completing my Psychology thesis at UNE with the goal of becoming a school counsellor. I have a Masters of Teaching (primary), and I am a former Primary Teacher. I have taught all years up to year seven but specialised in Drama. I have had lots of experience with special needs students and even know basic Auslan! I believe every student deserves the right to an exceptional education. I often use Garden’s multiple intelligences combined with Blooms Taxonomy to ensure students develop a well-rounded understanding and to encourage different learning styles. I believe no two students will learn the same way and strive to provide a personalised learning environment. I enjoy hands-on learning but also enjoy diving into the depths of comprehension and learning concepts. I believe learning can be fun as well as focused and that we shouldn’t be scared to make mistakes!
Hi my name is Liliana Gonzalez-Calero, and I am currently in my 4th year studying a Bachelor of Primary Education at Griffith University. I am a very friendly and approachable individual and enjoy helping others. Tutoring gives me the opportunity to pass my knowledge down to others whilst also learning from them. In my practicums I have taught at various schools, from independent public schools to private schools. I have a passion for education and helping students learn in ways that suit them best. My knowledge across a range of subject areas allows me to have the skills to make lessons engaging, informative and enjoyable. In high school I studied Maths B, English, Modern History, Physic, Japanese and Science 21, and I am more the equipped to tutor these subjects to students. Also, I graduated from a Queensland High School, so I am familiar with the Queensland Core Skills test, and would be more than willing to tutor students seeking guidance and assistance. When I graduate from University I hope to teach out in a rural community, as I believe it would be a truly rewarding and life changing experience.

I’m currently studying at Griffith University (Gold Coast) and am still figuring out what direction I want to go in but am applying to study a Bachelor of Education specialising in maths (transferring from a Bachelor of Arts- Sociology). I have completed one year of uni studying two semesters of Business/Commerce and one of Sociology.
I have experience in helping out my younger cousins with their subjects in high school especially maths, and am keen to extend that experience. I know how much more enjoyable a subject is when you understand it and have confidence in yourself which I hope to bring to other students! I understand that everybody learns differently so I promise to approach every student with patience and optimism. I look forward to working with you!

Hi! My name is Jasmine Stewart and I completed my schooling at Trinity Lutheran College. Currently, I am studying a double degree of Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor Business at Griffith University, Gold Coast campus. Throughout school I had large and demanding dance commitments, so I totally understand just how difficult it can be to juggle schooling with external commitments. But I also know that getting the results you want IS attainable with hard work and organisation.
Melanie LoSubjects: Primary Maths, Year 7-10 Maths, Year 11-12 General Maths, Year 11-12 Advanced Maths, Year 11-12 Chemistry & Year 11-12 Biology
Hello everyone, my name is Melanie and I’ve recently graduated from high school with an OP 2. Through my experience of tutoring, I have been able to improve students’ grades and positively influence their attitude towards certain subjects. I’ve always had a passion for teaching and would love to help students maximise their potential and achieve their goals. I’m fluent in English and Chinese (Mandarin, Cantonese and Hokkien). I also have extensive knowledge in maths (A & B), biology and chemistry. For me, knowledge is power. The world is changing, and it is changing fast. Hence, we must work hard and continually build on our knowledge! Before each lesson commences, I would make a lesson plan for each student according to their needs as well as preparing quizzes and worksheets to make sure they truly understand the topic they’re learning. I’m very eager to help students overcome the challenges they face. It gives me a sense of enjoyment to help my students gain a sense of achievement through their development over the lessons!
